Clicking noise with my GE GSS22WGP

I returned home from work to realize a clicking noise about 1 second apart and now water flowing through the ice dispensor. I changed out the water filter thinking the water filter was clog, and nothing. After further inspection and removing the rear plate covering the electronics board and compressor i experienced the clicking noise coming from one of the relays, and the compressor motor turning a bit at a time. I don't know if this is a electronics problem or a Compressor one. Which can i fix if any and or which has to be replaced.

    My maytag MBF2256 does the exact same intermittent clicking any time the ice machine cycles on. Drives us crazy. Pushing the arm up to stop making ice causes it to stop immediately. Pain in the rear, but not sure I want to spend a repair call on it.

I am not sure if you mean the relay which is attatched to the side of the compressor or some sort of control relay. If you say relay to an engineer we normally assume you mean the one attatched to the compressor. If you are saying that the compressor tries to start but cannot then you probably have a compressor fault. The first thing to do would be to check the voltage going to the compressor and check that you have a steady correct voltage. If you are talking about a relay on a control board then I have not seen this particular unit but would suggest that you can check coil voltage on the relay on the pcb normally. I am sorry to be vague. Hope this is of some help.

This usually indicates that the ice full arm is trying to reset to eject some more ice, but it is stuck on some ice. Rearranging the ice in the bin will allow the ice to be ejected.

I know this because that same annoying clicking annoyed me for a while, and I traced it to the freezer, and by rearranging the ice, about 1-2 minutes later I heard the ice drop into the tray and the ice maker refill. I'm not sure if it is a feature or an accident, but it seems to work well.

Your PTC relay is bad it protects the compressor from over heating and overloading. You need to replace it.

First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

It sounds like you have a bad icemaker. Usually when the arm is clicking its the gears that are stripped out. Feel in the icemaker if theres cubes frozen in there then you know the icemaker is definitely bad. With the arm in the up position it will not make cubes at all that is the off position for the icemaker. Hope this helps _MJ_

Clicking noise coming from back of refer. Push in water dispenser, noise stops, no water.... Ice maker is working but not really good.


Is it time to replace your water filter?
Check water supply line at the back of the refer for good pressure and flow.

Refrigerator not working.


I had a similar problem with my Maytag fridge. Turns out the ice melted around the switch (protected by a rubber cover) and got into the actual switch area, shorting out the circuit every time you push the switch to dispense ice..

Took it apart and removed the water and worked great.

Hope this helps.

Water/Ice machine controls acting up


the clicking noise is likely a relay that turns on the selected function. if you see some square shaped (about one inch by 1.5 inches tall) plastic parts on the top of the board, touch them while someone pushes a switch. if you can feel and hear the click, then this is normal. still do not know of your solution though.
